4-Star DE Impressed with Clemson Visit
Defensive end Tony Tucker, a 6-3, 225 pound prospect out the Washington, D.C. area traveled south earlier this month to visit several ACC and SEC powers, including Clemson.
"I have done my last visit for a while," Tucker told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I drove down and visited Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and Clemson. They were all nice. Tennessee and Clemson showed me a lot of love."
The visit to Clemson allowed the talented defender to see Death Valley at night, and apparently he came away very impressed with the experience.
"I went down to Clemson at night time. I got to see Death Valley. We looked at the facilities and the weight room. I got to see about the academics. I just had fun. I went down with my whole family. We really liked it," he said.
When asked about his favorites, Tucker responded, "I haven't made my top ten list year. Hopefully before the season I will narrow it down to ten."
Not surprisingly, any type of decision is likely months away for the 4-star defensive end. "I plan to take some visits during the season. I will make my decision after my senior season," he said.
What will be most important factors for Tucker as he begins to narrow his list? "I will look at the coach player relationship. I am looking for a team that runs their program like a family. I am also looking for a nice environment. Academics will also play a big part.
"Like I said I think I am done for the summer. I am just going to be working out and getting ready for the season. I have some high expectations so I want to be ready."
Clemson defensive line coach Chris Rumph and graduate assistant Andy Ford are recruiting Tucker for the Tigers.
